On Friday last week our team was back at it. This time conducting a drug sales sting. Their efforts resulted in the arrest of six people for selling methamphetamine to undercover officers.
Here is what we did:
Posing as buyers, our officers focused on the Harvey West area and the top of Ocean Street. Officers purchased various quantities of methamphetamine from street level sellers in these areas. Sometime after the deal was done, arrest teams swooped in and arrested the sellers.
Here are the arrestees:
Kevin Jones, 42 years – County resident, a felony probationer. Mr Jones sold us methamphetamine at Harvey West Park
Kathryn Gibbons, 32 years – Transient, a state parolee and felony probationer. Ms. Gibbons sold us methamphetamine at Grant Street Park
Paul Ensminger, 49 years – County resident. Mr. Ensminger both conspired and sold us an amount of methamphetamine in the area of the 200blk of Coral Street
Anthony Rodriguez, 52 years – Santa Cruz resident. Mr. Rodriguez both conspired and sold an amount of methamphetamine in the area of the 200blk of Coral Street
John Burke, 55 years – Santa Cruz resident. Mr. Burke both conspired and sold an amount of methamphetamine at Harvey West Park
